If in 2013 you’re attending a wedding and want to wear something comfortable but not too casual, think about an ah-mazing brocade dress. Brocade is commonly made from silk, cotton, polyester and viscose. Featuring a subtle (usually gold) sheen it is generally shaped with transparent prints like florals, paisley, swirls and sometimes abstract. The design was seen in many 2013 fashion shows including Vera Wang, Mary Katrantzou, Monique Lhuillier and Alexander McQueen.
Jessica Alba’s dress she wore to the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 2013 costs 2.640 €. How about considering some cheaper alternatives which still nail the trend?
Textured metallics are hot on our fashion radar, and Kensie takes the trend in a refined direction with this gold brocade dress. The Midas touch-print design gently skims womanly curves for a flattering ladylike fit. A fun full skirt lends an ultra feminine look to the eye-catching jacquard print. A dainty belt accentuates the fit-and-flare silhouette to make sure the dress pulls out all of the stops!
Combining sumptuous brocade and body-conscious tailoring, this beautiful strapless dress designed by supermodel Erin Fetherston is visually stunning and figure-flattering. Silver stilettos and an evening clutch are the only additions you’ll need to complete an exquisite ensemble for the special night out.
The name of the dress has a special meaning behing it. The darling design was taken to the stage at the Democratic National Convention by Michelle Obama and now it’s publicly available! Embracing the season’s fresh new mood, the floral-laden dress features a bold attitude like a peekaboo detail at the back tempered by a subtle sweet silhouette.
This brocade dress is almost a runway highlight and it was clearly inspired with the one as seen at Vera Wang’s spring summer 2013 collection. Both dresses boast a classic cleanly cut silhouette and a gorgeous brocade fabric. Both provide the perfect contrast thanks to the opulent fabric and a jeweled neck. The difference: the pattern and the price.
